We got a new kitten over THanksgiving. She likes to crawl into the electronics cabinet (for the warmth I assumed). Turns out she chewed through the MX-780 cable leading to the Directv receiver. It wasn't until I got in there and started to try your suggestions that I figured it out. Many thanks for all for helping out.
One day my projector would not turn on or off via my MX-890/MRF-350. Turns out our new kitten had also chewed through the emitter wire. Why couldn't he have picked a wire that all I had to do was replace the emitter instead of soldering the head to the CAT5 running to the projector.
Wife wanted a glass door on the equipment cabinet, but I did not since I was worried about heat build up. So now we have a piece of cardboard covering the bottom of the cabinet so he can't get back in. Hopefully he will outgrow his fascination with the cabinet.
